The Nature Center Preserve comprises 240 acres behind SCCF's Nature Center. 

Acquired over the years 1971 - 1984, with multiple past owners, the lands that became the Nature Center protect a core component of the Sanibel River and the unique interior freshwater wetland. The preserve encompasses the Sanibel River, uplands, and a season freshwater wetland - an unique feature for a barrier island. Our trail system will let you experience it all.
